RSPCA appeal: Can you find a new home for 'affectionate' Joss?
Can you help Joss the Jack Russell find a loving new home?
Joss the dog, Star the cat, and Molly and Matilda the degus are all looking for new owners in our regular RSPCA Southridge appeal.
Joss is a handsome nine-year-old Jack Russell who is looking for a new home.
A spokeswoman for RSPCA Southridge said: “Unfortunately his elderly owner became too ill to continue looking after him.
“He is a very friendly boy who would be best suited to an adult only home as the only pet.”
Joss would prefer someone around most of the day.
“He is an affectionate dog who loves cuddles and attention and enjoys his walks and playing in the compound,” added the RSPCA Southridge spokeswoman.
“If you think you could offer Joss a forever home he would love to meet you!”
Star is a beautiful five-year-old domestic shorthair crossbreed who was found as a stray.
“Initially Star is quite shy, but with gentle handling she seems to enjoy being stroked and the attention,” said the spokeswoman for the centre in Packhorse Lane.
Star will need a quiet home with children of secondary school age with owners who will give her the time and space she needs to settle.
She will require outside access to a secure garden.
“Star is a lovely girl who is desperate for a second chance at finding happiness and a loving home,” added the RSPCA spokeswoman.
Molly and Matilda are a sweet pair of degus looking for their forever home together.
They will need regular, gentle handling and a large cage with lots of toys to play with.
Degus are naturally very active and inquisitive, so Matilda and Molly must get lots of physical and mental stimulation.
